David Perry

Executive Director Emeritus

If our history were a person, it would be David Perry. He joined the team at Arkansas Baptist Children’s Homes and Family in 1979 and has a passion for ministering to hurting children and families. David committed his life to Jesus Christ as a young boy in his home church in Monahans, Texas. After completing his undergraduate degree from Baylor University in Waco, he went on to earn a master’s degree in social work from the University of Georgia. David works with staff members, Arkansas Baptist churches, donors and partner ministries to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. He is directly responsible to the Board of Trustees for agency operations. David and his wife, Lucia, have been married since 1977 and are blessed with three children, two daughters-in-law and five grandchildren. In addition to spending time with his family, David likes to fish, hunt and travel.
